HUGGS Students

We have passed the half-way mark in the 2019 matching campaign!   Now, we ask for your support in achieving our goal of $10,000.   This will match an equivalent amount gifted by a generous donor, for a total of $20,000.

 If your donation is already on its way, thank you!


This year, the campaign focuses on providing counselling services for our students.  Beneath their happy smiles, HUGGS students deal with stress at several levels - 

  • at school due to peer pressure and the demands of maintaining good grades
  • at home because of their family’s financial constraints
  • in future decisions about their careers and personal lives.

They need professional counselling, which HUGGS plans to provide.


We invite you to be a part of this year' campaign to help reach our goal by December 31, 2019.    You may donate on line or send a cheque to HUGGS Canada 1044 St. Georges Avenue, North Vancouver, BC, V7L 3H6.  2019 tax receipts will be issued for donations received by December 31.


There is no better time than now to make your donation – since it will have double the impact!


Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

HUGGS Student

HUGGS Canada is a registered Canadian charity, empowering youth through education in South East India. HUGGS focuses on promising young people who have the ability to excel in education, but are without the resources to study beyond Grade 10.

Thanks to our generous donors, we sponsor young people in Visakhapatnam (Vizag), to complete their secondary and post-secondary education. Students are selected based on financial need, academic ability and family encouragement.

Today more than 30 HUGGS graduates are working in their communities in careers including nursing, teaching, engineering, finance and computing.
